yes!

These guys rock live 'nuff said. An added bonus is they make great albums too. I little bit old school country, some rock and roll all topped off with punk attitude. good stuff

Blazes trail left smokin' by Slobberbone

SelfRisinMojo

working class rock and roll delivered with punk energy and the touch of a vocal twang here and grassy riff there to give it a slight country feel. These are the kind of tightly executed, small town anthems that Springsteen tried to pull off but failed to because he just didn't understand the importance of rocking like hell, these boys most assuredly do.

This recording combines the Uncle Tupelo-esque start/stops mixed with the southern rock sensibilities of the Drive-by Truckers. Though mostly an excercise in pure sonic force, it does occasionally slow down for and offer a sincere ballad (see Saturday Night). If you like Bloodshot Records kind of stuff you'll like this.

They Say All Music Guide

It’s really a shame that the Bob Stinson edition of the Replacements never did much more than flirt with country music. If they had, the results would have sounded an awful lot like Two Cow Garage’s The Wall Against Our Back, and that’s intended as a compliment to both bands. Recorded in appropriately garage-like conditions by Slobberbone’s Brent Best (who infuses the proceedings with the same ragged-but-right feel as his own band), the Columbus-based trio blasts out 13 songs that toy with grunge-era soft/LOUD dynamics at a thrashing pace. The relentless forward motion is broken once — again, just like on a Replacements album — by “Saturday Night,” a solo acoustic ballad by singer Micah Schnabel that gives the otherwise Westerberg-hoarse singer a chance to be a bit more gentle to his vocal cords and the listener a chance to rest up a bit for the seething revved-up country two-step of “If This Is Home” and the flat-out punk fury of “Smell of Blood,” which wouldn’t sound out of place on a Hüsker Dü album. Cowpunk (as opposed to the more polite and rootsy alternative country) lives on in these grooves. – Stewart Mason
